In 2021, EPA and its partners convened a series of virtual workshops on resiliency and natural disaster debris with EPA Region 5 and EPA Region 9.

Workshop participants generated a range of practical steps the federal government and others can take to bridge gaps and drive innovation around disaster debris management and resilience, including:

  • Reducing the generation of disaster debris.
  • Equitably and safely managing disaster debris.
  • Leveraging funding resources.
  • Building a community of practice.
  • Developing a resource center with technical assistance.
  • Sharing and developing additional case studies, best practices, and pilot projects.

The Resiliency and Natural Disaster Debris Workshop Final Summary Report summarize the themes and potential actions that emerged from virtual workshop conversations.
